  1. Add a "Virtual Reality" category

    There's going to be a major surge of interest in VR technology once the consumer models start shipping the end of this year and into 2016. As of now, VR streamers are scattered all over the place and are hard to find.

    The majority of games that VR streamers are going to be playing will not be big name titles, but rather small miscellaneous tech demos, so there currently isn't any fitting category for us to set for our stream.

    It's also not a technology that appeals to the majority of gamers currently, so having a reliable place for us…

    • spambot Solution?

      I have noticed that spambots are becoming more rampant again on twitch and I feel a better solution to dealing with the bots are needed. Obviously this is hard to do as bots use multiple accounts to essentially "spam" a link in someone's chat. However I have noticed that bots tend to latch on to streams and "spam" the same link over and over so here is my solution. Why not add the links to a globally banned link list or something similar where if a certain link is posted in a twitch chat it will be *** out? how…

      • Keemo = Kappa based on Teemo from League Of Legends

        Like Keepo is based on Meepo from DOTA 2

        • add a fast forward function in past broadcast videos

          I really like to watch live broadcast on Twitch and most of them are League of Legends plays. For some reason I can't always catch up the live, I watch the past broadcast video later. However, usually it's a collection for many hours. When I want to fast forward some seconds I move the mouse a little and click but it goes for minutes. So, it will be more convenient if we had the function when press the forward key on the keyboard and the video goes fast forward like 5 seconds. Hope you can add this to videos. Thanks…

          • add gamestop cards as a subscription option

            Well I really think GameStop cards should be a payment option since GameStop is you know. A gaming store.

            • Improved Features for Team Pages

              Twitch Teams are a important part of the Twitch community, and yet we rarely see the team being utilized other than when a streamer broadcasts for that team. The ideas I have to improve the Team experience will not only improve the Team page, but also allow for better promotion, increase networking within Twitch, and give viewers a better experience on a team page.

              • Give the default team page it's own 'stream', not for live content but for VoD content.
              - This feature will allow the team lead(s) to showcase different members of the team 24/7
              - If this…

                • Allow Users to Organize Their Followers in Sub Groups

                  On the Following page allow us to make sub groups to put certain streamers in. Example:

                  Follow a lot of Team 2G streamers? Make a sub group for them so they aren't mixed in with your other followers.

                  Follow a lot of streamers from different games? Make a CS:GO, League of Legends, and DOTA 2 sub group so they are organized better.

                  I think this would be a good way to make things more organized and couldn't take too much effort to set up.

                  • Always show "Playlist" on screen (no mouseover) for playlist mode.

                    With the new playlist mode many viewers are confused about if the channel is live or not. If you mouse-over the video it does show "Playlist" but I think there needs to be a more prominent "PRERECORDED" or "PLAYLIST PLAYING" always on-screen. Even having it in the title doesn't seem to be enough.

                    • Auto-quality in the browser

                      I can watch a Twitch stream on ChromeCast (which is essentially Chrome running full-screen at the TV), and the stream quality automatically switches as needed.

                      However, the web browser version (i.e. the Flash-based viewer) selects a single quality and sticks to it.

                      Shouldn't the web browser viewer also have the "auto" quality?

                      • Implement "Time Since Last Stream" and "Time Until Next Planned Stream"

                        I think the following would be nice little additions:

                        1) Allow streamer to clearly display the last time he streamed (started and/or stopped)
                        2) Allow streamer to clearly display the next time he intends to stream
                        3) Allow streamer to opt out of both of the preceding

                        • Single Panel for Hosted channels

                          Logged into twitch today after a hard slog at uni and saw this: http://i.imgur.com/g9gE0qv.png
                          Suggestion: For a stream that's being hosted by multiple people you follow, have only one panel and have the title as "being hosted by" and then the multiple names. It's not a massive problem, however I think it's a nice little suggestion. :)
                          I don't follow LoL, however I do find it interesting and know the scene is massive, so I imagine the problem is a lot worse for most people this weekend.

                          • Update game list for games with same name

                            I have noticed games series that use the same name twice (usually due to reboots) causes the game list to get confused and delete one of them in favour of the other. For example Sonic The Hedgehog and Sonic the hedgehog (2006) Same title but only the original shows on the game list not the 2006 version. I have noticed this with other games too, both games should be able to be on the list simultaneously. Another ways this is my idea :D

                            • add a community/group multi streaming

                              I'm currently a stream manager for a gaming community and we want to have multiple streamers. It would be amazing to have a Twitch page just for the community/group and have our streamers listed under that. Every follow and subscribe would go to the community owner not the individual follower but there can be a donation button to either give to the individual or the community. They decide who to donate to.

                                www.zwift.com is a game currently streamed by a few of us twitch streamers. We (other streamers and I ) have taken the steps to get it on Giantbomb.com and have requested it be added to your games library on other websites and feedback areas without any response yet. Please let us know if this is possible and when it may happen. Thanks!

                                • Open links posted in chat in a new browser window/tab, not the current one in which twitch chat resides.

                                  Can't believe this hasn't yet been fixed but:

                                  1. At the moment when you click a link someone posts in chat on twitch, it goes to the link location in the twitch window/tab in which it was clicked, meaning you have to go back in your browser or find the twitch channel you were watching by another means if you are not paying attention.

                                  2. Make it so that the current twitch window/tab opens as is and the link opens in a new window/tab.

                                  I know that when you post a link to a new channel at the end of…

                                  • Add an option to watch the games slower and faster. Like Youtube -2x -0.5x -0.25x Normal 0.25x 0.5x 2x.

                                    I'm Age of empires 2 fan, and I love watching the games. When I can't see a cast live, and look for the past streams, but sometimes they are 3-6 hours, and it takes a lot of time to see. So I wait until the streamers upload the games to Youtube, which doesn´t happens every time. It would be awesome to be able to increase reproduction speed as Youtube player, or VLC or PotPlayer, etc.

                                    Thanks!

                                    • Add search feature at a minimum to the Amazon firestick app.

                                      Due to exceptionally poor UX when trying to find a certain channel or specific streamer, the Amazon FireStick Twitch App really needs a search feature as we spend ages just trying to find a certain channel or stteamer to the point of giving up.

                                      • Allow users to subscribe to just the emotes of a streamer for a lower price

                                        There are a lot of streamers who have emotes I like, but I don't watch them so I can't justify 5 dollars a month. Instead, I suggest being able to subscribe to an emote for a lower price (Say, .50c - $1 per emote) to be able to support the streamer and still feel justified in my purchase.

                                        • Javascript volume call

                                          Hi I think that if possible you should add the ability to dynamically change the volume of an embedded stream with JavaScript.
